Health department lowers the bar on Agenda for Change pay system

The Department of Health has admitted it will be happy if 95% of staff are switched to the Agenda for Change pay system by the end of September deadline.

The original deadline was 100% of staff being switched by 30 September, but according to the Nursing Times, HR director Andrew Foster has written to the NHS Staff Council setting out the new position.

The magazine reported that Foster said it was “particularly difficult to understand” why 25 organisations have still not assimilated any staff to Agenda for Change. He added that he wanted to wait until the end of August before responding to the request for managed extensions from some trusts.
